Ceiling fan

I installed a hunter ceiling fan today.

I'm glad I read the reviews that the directions were bad, because they were.

First the "shipping blocks" were actually a piece of metal that was screwed in so tightly I stripped out a screw. Sadly we didn't find out that they had shipped one extra of each screw until it was already too late.

Secondly getting all the wires up in the canopy was, as expected, hard. Luckily we re-watched the installation video for the remote box and found where the box is supposed to live.

There is another screw I would have replaced, given the chance.

I can't say the globe holding design impresses me.

Other than that, it went ok, though it was a number of very tiring steps as well as some good forethought on my part, like putting a towel over the holes in the fan to keep the screws from dropping in during installation.

Our ladder isn't quite tall enough.
